Blessings for the New Baby......{Seize the Sketch #14}

Good Morning Everyone!
It is time for another Seize The Sketch Challenge.

Here is the new challenge sketch.....
Hosted this week by the very talented Amy

And here is the baby card I made based on the sketch!
For my card I used the adorable Peachy Keen Stamps~Over the Moon stamp set. I colored that CUTE cow using my copic markers and then cut the image out, placing it aside while I put the rest of my card together.
Since I LOVE my sewing machine so much, I added alot of stitching to my card. First to the card mat and the through the center mat where the white/pattern paper meets.
All the designer paper for my card is from DCWV~The Boyhood Stack and the Kraft, cream and white cardstock are all from my stash.
After all my pieces were sewn and attached to my card base, I further embellished my card by stamping some additional stars from the same stamp set, this to match the embossed white cardstock as well as the embossed "moon".
The sentiment was added to a die cut Vintage Label Die from My Creative Time stamped on a scrap of Kraft cardstock.
To finish my card~ and not really visible in the picture~ I colored the stars using my Wink of Stella pen as well as adding some to the embossed white stars too. This really adds some fun twinkle to them :)

So what do you think???
I hope you like my card and will play along with the new challenge!
